ACT Today! Reaches $1 Million Milestone in Helping Families Impacted with Autism

ACT Today! (Autism Care and Treatment Today!) announces it has provided $1 million dollars in access to care and treatment to families of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) who cannot afford the necessary tools their children need to reach their full potential. ACT Today! provides access to services such as social skills programs, tuition for special needs schools, therapy, medical care, assistive technology, basic safety equipment, assistance for military families with children with autism, assistance dogs, among many others. This earmarks the monetary sum of direct services and support to roughly 1,000 individuals with autism.

“Our goal is to introduce and help facilitate early and on-going treatment by providing the necessary resources (including referrals, funding and guidance) to individuals with autism and their families,” says ACT Today!’s executive director Nancy Alspaugh-Jackson. “ACT Today! is proud to offer an assistance program for assessments, treatments, and life supports that may not otherwise be covered privately or by other third-party funding sources such as school districts, county programs, insurance, and/or other grant making entities.”

The ACT Today! Assistance Program funds are allocated based on annual fundraising activities. The Board of Directors determines the number and amounts of each grant at the beginning of each term. Requests for endowments or multi-year grants are not accepted. Applicants must demonstrate financial need by providing the following:

Proof of Household Income
